As soon as any 9th grade student can say "How are you" in chinese they will trot out Britt Combs and the cameras, maybe WLOS. In the interim, your childrens performance in English1 will continue to be in the forty percentile range. This is a show, it's theatre. It's part of trollingers "Global Institute of Change".

"The Economist" noted the irony of the Chinese Communist Party using Confucius to name the institute. "Mao vilified Confucius as a symbol of the backward conservatism of pre-communist China. Now the philosopher, who lived in the 6th century BC, has been recast as a promoter of peace and harmony: just the way President Hu Jintao wants to be seen. Li Changchun, a party boss, described the Confucius Institutes as “an important part of China’s overseas propaganda set-up”.

It would appear that this imagery was mentioned by you first, and not the poster.

It looks like you had the imagery first, and not the poster. "ram it down your throat" was used rhetorically, but it was you who made it into something sexual. Maybe you're a closet Gay.

Maybe Lynn Greene can go pick the chinese instructor up in his Sheriff's car. Lights, siren, have a parade for all the ignorant mountain people and introduce them to the outside world. "LOOK MOMMA!! a chinese is here.

Uh, and what else is "ram it down your throat" supposed to mean? And was used as a metaphor, not rhetorically. Typical uneducated Republican response... you must be a "wide stance" Republican.

You must have a selective reading problem. Or maybe a problem with reading comprehension? It was in the first post, dumbass.

Well we might get education into our schools after all if the has been know it alls would stay out of things that are none of their business. I praise those who refuse to let the ignorant monority dictate how our schools will be run. Its very simple to choose to take or not to take any subject. Hopefully, positive parents will encourage their students to take part in this new approach.

We owe our students the best education possible so they can compete in a global economy. It is shortsighted to want to withhold this opportunity. If you are looking to cut funding for education start with some of the older programs that continue to receive more and more money with no real checks and balances to see if they are working for our children.

Finally a post that makes sense. Our young people need to be able to compete and that means having a up to date education. Out of the past and on to the future. I bet it will be well received by the students.

If you think you know who I am, come visit me. And I've never been on our former senator. But your handle says it all, at least what you think of yourself. Once again, if you think you know who I am, come visit me... or has Obama emasculated you?

No, my vocabulary is fairly extensive. If my questioning of the republican gay metaphor fetish is bothersome to you, don't respond.

Simple questions: If this is such a wonderful advancement of our school system offering then why are the students of West McDowell Junior High School less deserving of receiving the benefits of the same? Are the students of West less deserving? I think not. Could it be the pushover East leader had it thrust upon him while the decisive West leader refused?
Then again with the former East Marion, Clinchfield and Galey and Lord buildings located in the East end, perhaps it was bnorad member Greene's plan to have the teacher placed at East to get a jump start on all those Chinese manufacturing plants that he believes will locate here.
